Egg Laying Concern

Postby Muzz123 » Wed Apr 14, 2021 6:43 am

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all well.

So my bearded dragon is pregnant for the 3rd time this year. Every time has been relatively smooth and I feel like I am getting the hang of things. So my BD laid one egg in the middle of her vivarium today. She hasn't been digging and isn't at all restless so I haven't put her in her lay box yet. Just seems odd to have laid one and not begun digging.

Any suggestions at all?

Thank you.

How long has it been since the last time she laid? Is it possible it's just a left over egg?

Hi SandP,

Thank you for responding. She last laid around a month or so ago. She was subsequently given a MRI scan to make sure she didn't have any eggs left also and there wasn't any found.

She has put on significant weight in the last two weeks and has also begun to shed too.

Hi there, it's possible that she's ready to lay another clutch even though she's not digging. Best to put her in her laybox.

Thank you AHBD

She is currently in bed asleep now so I will put her tomorrow. It just seemed a little unusual considering she hasn't given any of the normal indicators that she is ready. I mean she hasn't been glass surfing either. In fact, her behaviour hasn't really changed except she has stopped eating in the last two days which is normal.

Thank you for your help. I will see how she gets on tomorrow
